It is a vicious cycle that happens all the time here in America.  I have seen it in CA and now it is happening in our area.  Sad, sad....

Those comments moved me more than anything else that I have ever read on this forum.  The only thing I can conclude is that the lure of the retail stores is too big for them, so they want them to be more convenient to them, even if their own way of life has to be altered.  Also, the towns can get more sales-tax revenues.

After seeing my ancestors' home in Louisiana this past September, I have a better appreciation for the country than ever before, and if I had the resources, I would do all I can to preserve it.

saw an AP artilce about dw,king richard and biffle in washington state today lobbying for the people to vote for the tax increase to pay for the track.  dw said if they didn't vote for it he would build it himself until again asked if why nascar was so hellbent on building it, why can't they pay for it all, then came up with some bad math answer..when are they going to realize that not every nook and cranny of the country gives a damn about nascar, and if the biff wants to race in front of his homestate fans, he should go back more often and quit b i t c h i n g !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Turns out there's a story in today's Los Angeles Times that says that the local TV rating in the Los Angeles market for the Daytona 500 was a 4.3, less than half the 10.3 national rating.  In many weeks, as I noted two years ago, NASCAR ratings are lower than that of Mexican soccer games.  So I guess, despite the success of so many of our native sons in NASCAR (J. Gordon, R. Gordon, Johnson, Harvick), we still don't care either... Sad

Maybe if they would quit trying to build new tracks to attract more fans in the bigger market areas and concentrate on bringing back good racing, fans would be more inclined to think about accepting them.
